Queer Street*** E3 6a

Rockfax Description
A fantastic, but often frustrating and energy sapping route which is getting rather polished. Very safe, but strenuous to make it so. Climb to the groove and bridge up this until a layback sequence is demanded. If successful, move left to easier climbing leading to the break. Direct finish - straight up from the top of the groove. © ROCKFAX

hard. and pumpy. and dirty - when was this last climbed? bit disappointed not to get the onsight but gave it my all and fell just before the rotten stuck wire. after a rest i found a better way of doing that section which is easier and less strenuous. next time...

Had been hoping to get it clean this time. Getting to the crux wasn't easy but not too bad. Unfortunately then had the usual problem - couldn't read the moves quickly enough, so fell off the crux. Got back on, made a bit more progress and slipped off carelessly. Got it third go (sort of laybacking). Clean to the top after the crux, going left at the thread, then finishing direct past a hard section which was a bit dirty. Disappointed not to get this clean.

Fell at the crux once, then had a rest before and after the crux for each. Disappointed. But it was an excellent route.

Dogged it to the crux, getting increasingly knackered. Fell off the crux a few times (couldn't quite get the balance right), then gave up. Top roped without too much of a problem after Brian led the route. Another one to come back and do cleanly.

Some gear already in as Misha failed to lead it.
